Full Key Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Want a Chinese meal at midnight? You can head here for a Cantonese splurge of congee with pork, squid and peanuts or more likely the predictable sweet 'n' sour pork or shredded beef, Szechuan-style. If you can read Chinese characters, check out the specials board, which may offer codfish with bean curd in a casserole or salty fish, chicken and eggplant. The place is not much to look at, but the prices are so low that families can eat well on a low budget, which explains why the restaurant is so popular.
